Blaming the Victim


Jamie and John are new converts to Judaism. After our third meeting together, Jamie sent me the following and asked me if I would share it with you. It was written before she and her husband discovered the Breslev Israel website and made contact with us.  Of course their names and other personal details have been changed in order to safeguard their privacy:
 
It started for me as a child, when I was repeatedly used and abused by men in my own nuclear and extended family. My life was a living hell full of sexual, emotional, verbal and physical abuse. Yet according to my former "religion," all my abusers had to do was declare: 'G-d was their Lord and Savior,' and then they could continue to act like the devil that they claimed was controlling them. Nothing was their fault. All they needed to do was 'claim the blood of JC' and they were forgiven for what they did to me, regardless of how many times they continued to do it. When I was only three or four years old I remember crying out to G-d to 'please let my father think I was sleeping so he would leave me alone this time' -  of course he never did.  
 
As an abuse survivor I felt inherently 'bad' even when I hadn't done anything wrong. I also felt incredible guilt that I was unable to so easily forgive  the many people who abused me. I felt rejected by G-d and doomed to hell because I had been told 'if you do not forgive others, G-d will not forgive you.' In my former 'religion' I was taught that 'if people abuse you, just turn the other cheek and let them abuse you some more.' This made me furious with G-d! How dare He expect me to love and forgive the people who were hurting me over and over again and who didn't show the slightest feeling of guilt for what they did to me! The abuse that I suffered was so severe that all of my therapists asked me the same question: 'how did you survive it!' 
 
Today, as a result of the abuse that I experienced,  I cannot be left alone without feeling overwhelming panic and anxiety. My husband and I are literally joined at the hip. I can't do anything without him next to me. I feel like a dependent little child. I have no joy, satisfaction or sense of accomplishment from my life and I've been living this way for years. In addition, I can't separate myself emotionally from my parents without my feeling sorry for them - despite their never having taken responsibility for what they did to me. My parents expect me to deny what happened  and when I don't, they treat me like I'm the crazy one! 
 
Jamie has been in extended psychotherapies on numerous occasions and yet after only three sessions of coaching based on the teachings of Rabbi Arush, she has broken though her sense of helpless dependence on her husband, has shown the ability to be alone and has even driven places by herself for the first time in years. Jamie has also decided to break off contact with her parents, at least for now.  Jamie is now feeling very close to G-d and is seeing signs of His love for her everywhere. Her mood has become very elevated and optimistic.
 
As I'm writing this, Jamie is only about half way through theGarden of Emuna, yet she is already growing at supersonic speed.  Here's one example: Jamie and John recently borrowed money from John's father to buy a business that had been losing money for a long time. After our last meeting, on her own, Jamie decided to shave off her hair (which was "seen by other men") and grow new hair that only her husband will see. She has done this despite having been Jewish for only several months. Jamie now proudly covers her head despite being the only woman in her synagogue that does so. She feels a purity and cleanliness that is practically euphoric. When Jamie's neighbors saw her with her head covered, they thought that she was in chemotherapy, G-d forbid. This just made Jamie laugh.
 
Literally from the first day that Jamie covered her hair, there has been an explosion of new customers coming into their store.Jamie and her husband are feeling so grateful to Hashem for their livelihood that they also decided to close the business on Shabbos from now.
 
Jamie now writes: Continue reading here...

What's God Doing?

Like watching puzzle pieces coming together, G-d's communications became increasingly clear with each piece of this amusing story. The part that I left out of the story is that before my wife came into the room, her husband said to his wife: "...wait, you'll see his wife is going to come in wearing the same color head covering as you" - and she did! I hope you enjoy this.




Have great day!

Russian Roulette




Emma's wealthy father was alcoholic. Her mother was schizophrenic. When Emma was 8 years old, her mother was sent to a psychiatric hospital. Following this, her father divorced her mother and married another women. Emma's step-mother was cruel and turned Emma's father against her and her siblings. In order to appease his new wife, Emma's father became more remote from the children of his previous marriage. 
 
Emma's father had Emma involuntarily committed to a psychiatric hospital for children. She was kept there for 2 years against her will. It's doubtful that Emma even needed psychiatric treatment. The "hospital" where she was forced to stay ultimately made the headlines and was permanently shut down due to the horrible crimes against children that took place there. 
 
Emma was badly damaged in that place. She doesn't want to speak about what she suffered there or what she saw being done to others. But Emma did tell me that if she wasn't "compliant" with her treatment - which sometimes meant that she didn't speak politely with the staff - she was held down, forcibly shot up with medicine, strait-jacketed and put into solitary confinement for days at a time. 
 
Emma had no visitors in the hospital and had no one to guide her when she was finally released from there. When she got out, Emma somehow ended up living with a family "down the street" who couldn't understand why her wealthy father had turned against his own daughter and refused to give her anything. Years later, when Emma was homeless, she called her father from a freezing cold phone booth and pleaded for help. Her father asked her why she was wasting good money on the phone call. 
 
As time went by, Emma's situation only worsened. As a teenager, she began to look for the parental love she yearned for in all the wrong places. Emma was hurt a "bunch of times" by men. On more than one occasion, she had a gun held to her head by men who played Russian roulette with her. Sobbing, Emma told me: "I know G-d was very close to me then. What could I do? When they pulled the trigger I closed my eyes and prayed. I know for sure that G-d was with me then. It could only have been Him who saved me from death." 
 
Emma was married twice - both times to violent men who drank. She told me about another spiritual experience that she had when she almost died during childbirth:
 
"I was given medicine without my consent. Suddenly something ruptured within me and I heard them say "emergency C-section." As they wheeled me down the hall I felt myself slipping away. I couldn't die though - who was going to take care of my three children? After the procedure, they told me that my son had been deprived of oxygen for the last two hours and would either die or be brain damaged. I shouted at them: 'no that's not going to happen! I refuse to believe that! He's going to be fine' - and he was! That was 13 years ago and he is a perfectly normal kid today."
 
Emma raised four children by herself without a husband. Most of her relatives were drinkers and wanted nothing to do with her.  She had been accepted into a nursing program but resigned to stay home with her children. She opened a nursery and ran it from her house so she could keep an eye on her kids. She promised herself that she'd go back to school when her children were older. 
 
Emma protected her children like a lioness. Whenever they had a problem with a teacher or another kid, Emma was right there: "I had to become really tough to protect my children, maybe I became too tough and I don't want to be that way anymore - but it worked for my kids, and back then I didn't know any other way. If I felt that a teacher had it in for one of my kids they would have to face me and it wasn't pretty."
 
Today Emma is 50 years old and still single. Her IQ is in the superior range. She enrolled in a psychology program at a local college in an attempt to find a higher paying job. During this time, Emma discovered the Garden of Emuna and decided that she wanted to study emuna too. She applied for a bigger student loan so that she could simultaneously study in our Emuna Coach certification program while attending college. She said that she was studying psychology in order to find a better paying job but that she was studying emuna because it had saved her life so many times. Continue here...

Aliyah and Personal Growth


When the economic crash hit, the U.S. people had less money in their budgets for non-essential items like psychotherapy.  For the first time in more than thirty years, I was unable to keep up with my mortgage and car payments, and my credit card debt skyrocketed.  I scrambled to find alternative sources of income – even venturing into commercial real estate – but to no avail – nothing worked.
 
After a few years of “failure,” my wife and I looked at each other – what could we do? – Hashem was blocking every path to economic recovery that I tried – obviously He was sending me a message but I wanted no part of it.
 
Hashem saw that He had a tough customer in me so He proceeded to start smashing every idol that I believed in and worshiped until there was nothing left for me to believe in except Him. He started with my worship of money, honor and success and quickly proved to me that he could make my university degrees and professional license quite worthless.
 
Hashem continued by showing me that I couldn’t depend on Uncle Sam or on any of the other materialistic values that had sustained me till then.  The harder I worked the less I had to show for the time and energy I was expending – eventually the stress began to effect my health – and it wasn’t until Hashem had to put me in the hospital – that I got honest enough with myself and started waking up from the American dream I had been living all of my life. 

Even then – when my wife suggested that we make Aliya, I cringed at thought – that would be an admission of defeat – If I didn’t make it in the “land of opportunity,” I couldn’t make it anywhere.  Poor Zev was still holding on to the lie that only “the power of my own hands” could save me – even while Hashem was smashing all my idols – I was “sure” that if I just worked harder I could still redeem myself.

Imperfect is Perfect



The Rabbi was a happy person with a warm smile. He invited Sarah and me to his house to go over some last minute stuff before our wedding.
 
Entering the house, our eyes were drawn to the top floor and all the railings which were heavily boarded to prevent a fall – there was an autistic child living here.
 
Working in mental health professions somehow blinded Sarah and I from thinking that such a fate could happen to us too. This was a problem that only happened to other people. 
 
Well Hashem didn’t agree. But in his Infinite Mercy, He sent us the solution even before the “problem”.
 
We were married for almost two years before Yossie was born. But my strong desire to become observant didn’t start until right before his birth. 
 
It was nerve-wracking to see him for the first time. Yossie was born blue with the cord wrapped twice around his neck; even so, he was given medical clearance and in a few days we took him home thinking that he was perfectly “normal”.  
 
At the Bris (circumcision), there were family-members who scoffed at our new-found religious rituals.
 
I imagined the tearful prayers of my great, great, great grandparents when they probably noticed that religious observance was weakening in our family. How they must have begged Hashem that the Light of Torah should continue to shine through the generations of our family.
 
One would have thought that those prayers were said in vain, but Hashem had other plans. He held those prayers in Heaven until the right grandchild was born - Yossie was that special soul whose influence would heal the broken chain of Judaism in my family – at least I hoped so.
 
Yossie was 6 months old when he started banging his head. It was gut-wrenching to watch our strikingly beautiful and otherwise “normal” child repeatedly banging his head and hitting himself. We were stunned by what was happening. Was this G-d’s way of repaying us for becoming religious? The perpetual purple bruise on our son’s forehead made us feel cursed.
 
As a toddler Yossie wasn’t making sounds and didn’t understand what was being said to him. At age two, he was diagnosed with a speech and language problem and at three with pervasive developmental disorder – autism.
 
Little did we know, but the “horrific” news was to become one of our lives greatest blessings. 
 
The blessing didn’t unfold right away. Although religion helped us to cope, we were still not accepting that this was Hashem’s will and that it was meant for our very best. We went through years of trying to “overpower” Hashem’s wisdom and change his decree. The results were just frustration and discouragement.
 
It was also difficult for our other children. They felt the pain of having a brother who was not always accepted and sometimes ridiculed. It was hard for them to understand the world’s reaction to Yossie. 
 
In time, we became more aware of the great gift Hashem had given us:
 
When Avi was in 6th grade he wrote an essay he called: “What I admire most about my older brother.” He said that the person he admired most was his brother Yossie because: he has no sins; he never gets angry at people and he never speaks loshen hara (forbidden speech) about others. He said that Yossie was a very giving person and wanted very little for himself (which is all true). If you ask him for something, he’ll usually give it to you, even if hedoes want it for himself. 
 
And you should see our daughter, Yocheved, at age 9, engaging her brother Yossie, 19, in creative play, board games, and catch. At times, both she and Avi help Yossie feel more included even with their own friends. 
 
Amongst the greatest blessings that we receive from having Yossie is that our other kids are growing up attuned to what is most important in life: kindness and compassion to others.  At a young age, they already see beyond their own needs and feel the responsibility of being of service to others.

The Biopsychiatric Bluff


Dear Dr. Zev,
 
I'm a junior in college. I started seeing a psychologist about a year ago because I suddenly lost all of my confidence and began avoiding social situations. When this happened, I was too self-conscious to take my final exams, so I took "incompletes" in all my classes and moved back to the safety of my parent's house. It was then, that I started to see a psychologist. 
 
When I first met Dr. Jack, I saw that he was brilliant and very charismatic in a soft-spoken way. His office and waiting room were lined with books.  I was immediately drawn to Jack's confidence. Whenever he spoke, he had a little smile and a knowing twinkle in his eyes. I could see why so many people believed in him.  
 
In my second session, Dr. Jack gave me a blank piece of paper and a pencil and told me to draw a picture of a house, a tree, and a person. It took me about 10 minutes to complete. From these drawings, Jack diagnosed me as suffering from "endogenous depression." He contrasted endogenous depression to reactive or situational depression. He said that reactive depressive was a temporary depression that resulted from reacting to a trauma or other precipitating event and was not biological in origin. He told me that endogenous depression is a more complicated and serious type of depression which is biological in origin. This meant that I needed to take anti-depressant medication. Dr. Jack told me that talk therapy by itself would not be enough to help me. 
 
As Dr. Jack continued to explain the difference between the two types of depression I felt myself sinking deeper into hopelessness.  It was very painful to hear that the core of who I am is a damaged and defective person who was incapable of being happy like other people. In effect, the doctor told me that my whole identity was to be depressed. As I left his office, I never felt so bad about myself in my life. My whole existence had just been reduced to nothing - I felt like killing myself. He even dismissed whatever happiness I remembered as "isolated experiences." Due to my biological impairment, he was sure that I have always experienced an underlying depressive mood. 
 
I couldn't fight his logic. My doctor convinced me that I have endogenous depression. The problem now is what to do about it. Even with the medication and therapy that I'm receiving, I'm still not feeling any better. What's your advice? 
 
Sincerely Yours,
Jonathan

Is there a G-d?


This is a short story about a professor of philosophy who came to a Rabbi with the question: "Is there a G-d in the world?"

What hurts Daddy?



I HATE CIGARETTES!”
 
That’s just about as subtle as I can be on the subject. 
 
So of course, when my wife found a cigarette in our teenage son’s room, I felt justified in acting like an idiot. 
 
After all:
 
I know the health statistics; he doesn’t.
I saw people die from smoking ;he didn’t.
I led private and corporate smoking cessation seminars ; he didn’t.
I was exposed to a western anti-smoking  media blitz; he wasn’t.
 
So I planned a strategy that would be full proof; a zealous crusade to save my dear son. I didn’t know it yet, but my zealotry was nothing more than a thinly veiled attempt to manipulate my son into being the person that I want him to be.
 
Starting before he left for Yeshiva in the morning (6:30am) and from the moment he returned at night (9:15pm), I began to bombard him with all of the mortality statistics, anti-smoking pictures and frightening stories that I could find. He literally got up and went to sleep with me in his face; ranting and raving about the evil habit and the peers who had influenced him to smoke in the first place.
 
To my utter amazement, he still wouldn’t stop.
 
I was incredulous… beyond rage.  How ironic, that despite having worked with hundreds if not a thousand smokers, I was failing so miserably with my own son. I agonized further:
 
“Why didn’t he come to me…now he was hooked..…I thought we had a great relationship… why didn’t he let me help him.”
 
My mind raced:  “if he’ll defy me to smoke, what else will he defy me to do?”
 
Lucky for him I’m not a single parent. My wife and I sat down. She said: “You know you’re going to have to back off. You’re only making things worse with your tirades.  Zev, you know he’s a great kid. So he’s smoking a little.” 
 
 I couldn’t believe my ears. My blood pressure surged.  “So he’s smoking a little?” I repeated back (raising the volume a bit). 
 
 “Look Zev. He is going to stop, but not because you demand him too. We’re in Israel now. It’s just a fact that he sees a lot of his friends smoking.  As long as you stay angry at him you can forget about having any part in the solution.  Do me a favor and from now on, just stay out of it. Leave it to me!” 
 
I knew that she was right. I (the big smoking expert) was nothing but an impediment.
 
So I kept my mouth shut and he stopped the next day!
 
Shabbos came, and I started to calm down.  But I was still uneasy about the way that I had behaved.  I went outside to check-in with Hashem:
 
“Hashem, what happened here?  It was so out-of-character for my son to smoke cigarettes.  I must have done something to displease You. Please help me to see what’s going on.  I know that You were telling me something, but the sound of my own will, once again drowned out Your message. I’m sorry.  Show me, please, what I need to learn from this.”  
 
I walked back home feeling better.  Coming into the living room, I saw my son sitting on the couch. He’s 16. 
 
Smiling warmly, he said “Tatti (father) can we talk?”
 
Humbled but relieved I said: “sure.”
 
“Did mommy tell you that I stopped smoking?”
 
“Yes, she did.”
 
“And do you know why I stopped Tatti (father)?” Continue here...


Wishing you a fabulous day!
